R6: Janet

As the two blocks in this round hit the edge, I wanted to make sure I balanced out some of the elements I have been using. Thus the 3x4 at the top repeats the triangles from the other side and balances the light pieces. Then I used the 3x9 to pull the darkest brown over for balance. The picture really doesn't fully show the richness of the fabrics, but you can kind of feel the wheat stalk through the two new sections. We'll see when all is said and done. I do suspect that I have some areas that will lend themselves to embellishing It's weird when you have all these ideas but you don't know where the piece is going and which of your ideas may work out or not. This has been a fun project so far and has really made me think about my fabrics, values and shapes as I go.
